Parenting (or caregiving) is one of the most important jobs you've taken on. But the person you're caring for is going through some tough stuff, and the two of you aren't getting along. You're beating yourself up, because you keep screwing up your job, when all you want to do is help. You might even be coping with your own issues, in addition to helping them with theirs. You're scared of the future, and sometimes angry at the person you are caring for. You're lonely and even burnt out, because others don't understand.

ARE YOU A TEEN, OR A PARENT OF A TEEN? Are you feeling challenged, misunderstood, or feeling pressure in teenagehood? Or are you are parent who is challenged by your teen? Depression, anger, and anxiety are common feelings that can be running the show for teens and parents during this developmental stage of teenagehood, and can feel overwhelming. Staying trapped in the same fights, frustrations, anxieties, and unhappiness is a harmful cycle that can have lasting effects.

The issues I work with include communication, invalidation, reactivity, resentment, finances, intimacy, infidelity, trust, parenting, and power struggles.
Intimate relationships require an investment of time, care, commitment, and trust, as well as a willingness to be vulnerable. When difficulties do arise, experienced support and guidance can make a significant difference. As a relationship-focused counsellor, my goal is to provide a safe space for you and your partner to deeply understand - and begin shifting - your interpersonal dynamics in order to build a capacity for greater emotional freedom and connection.

Traumatic life events come in many forms. Regardless of the source, people feel powerless and groundless; often experiencing life on autopilot. Additionally, if you experienced a traumatic event as a child or the care you received involved toxic amounts of stress, abuse or neglect, a variety of attachment wounds can interfere with your present-day relationships, parenting abilities, and general well-being. Experiencing loss, rejection, abandonment, abuse or neglect disrupts development and changes our focus to survival. There is no timeline for healing from trauma, but it is possible to recover and create the life you desire.

Vulnerability can make us feel very uncomfortable, but if we view it as a transition, into higher self-esteem/confidence & therefore more life resilience then it is much healthier to forge ahead to find a therapist who can support us. Finding the best fit in seeking a therapist is the most important step in relieving your stress. Many of us struggle with unhappiness, anxiety, depression, suicide ideation, sleep deprivation, separation, divorce, conflict resolution, trauma, relationship, and parenting issues, emotion regulation, communication and assertiveness, boundaries, personal development, caregiver burden and so much more
